DP you make some great points here about the music business. I have been wondering many times with some of the new Road Trips series (which some are very good) why they are not available on download, most bands today ie: Gov't Mule, The Black Crowes, Moe., make most if not all their stuff ready to download and then they go and put out vinyl for vintage people using turntable. My wish is that the GD may in the futire make these SBD's available on livedownload's and then charge a base price, just my two cents. I think this will be inevitable that GD will do this because I cannot see them making money as the future of this business goes by selling CD's. Who knows?

I think elbow made a great point in the post that the archive is not trading it is taking. There was something cool about trading with someone and having a conversation about the recording and hearing their feedback when they recieved your tape you made for them. I know those days are gone and maybe the archive is the new medium for trading, which is cool because there are is some great stuff on this website. Just my thoughts feel free to comment. Mr. Tell you have some great insights into this forum always good posts from you.
